but unless you have the font itself (typically in type 1 format if
you're using latex), it will either not have *any* fonts in the pdf
(just references for a subsequent reader or processor to provide) or it
will use the urw type 1 clones of times roman.

or indeed


but in none of those cases does the latex package provide the type 1
fonts (since they all cost real money, which doesn't chime with the
charge [$0.00] for the package).
